News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

TENNIS

Assistant coach Chris Hooshyar of Auburn Women's Tennis has been named the ITA Women's National Assistant Coach of the Year. Just another honor to go along with a historic year for the ladies.

SOFTBALL

Kelsey Bogaards, aka "Turtle," told her story to the Opelika-Auburn News. Auburn's starting shortstop last season, Bogaards tore one ACL during the fall and then played in just one game this season before tearing the other ACL. She's been a rallying point for the team this post-season.

Carlee Wallace, Auburn's sophomore catcher, knows her pitchers well. To the point that she knows she has to talk to all five of them a bit differently when she goes to the mound for a talk. She's been a staple behind the plate in her two years on the Plains and her stature when she's at the plate is much larger than her 5'2 height.

FOOTBALL

Safety/Nickelback Tim Irvin is transferring from Auburn according to his Twitter account. He was a true freshman last year who saw action in all but three of Auburn's games.

Herb Hand is awesome at the Twitters. He's not just good for memes, gifs, funny comments, etc, though. He also is occasionally instructional. He recently tweeted some videos on blocking techniques that WarRoom Eagle took a look at.

What can Auburn expect from a healthy Carl Lawson? Well, I'd say they can expect one of the best defensive ends in the nation, personally. Here's to hoping Carl stays healthy this year and is able to go through a full season at full speed.

Here's more from AL.com on the Tigers' defense having to learn yet another defensive scheme. It's the 4th in 5 years, so the redshirt seniors (if there are any left) have a ton of different things they're working on.

Can we talk about dumb headlines? I don't know who wrote the headline of "Why Auburn may have the best fullbacks on the roster since Jay Prosch," but that's just horrible. You know why it's horrible? Because the fullbacks on the roster right now are the first fullbacks we've had on the roster since Jay Prosch.

What does Rhett Lashlee expect from his running backs this season? Well, a lot, because Auburn's running backs have been excellent the last few years. And this year those running backs will also include the fullbacks.

Both Gus Malzahn and Nick Saban were at the first Lutzie Invitational and spoke about their memories of the former Auburn Tight-end.
